My colleagues would be surprised to know that … I’m a vegetarian.

The lawyer I most admire is … Thurgood Marshall.

The quality I most like in a lawyer is … authenticity—the ability for them to be themselves in the courtroom.

My pretrial routine is … early morning jog, light breakfast and meditation.

When I started, I wish I knew … how to create a better work-life balance.

When I win a case, I celebrate by … letting my daughters pick a restaurant for a family dinner night. I do not believe any victory or loss should be celebrated or mourned for more than a day.

The SCOTUS justice I’d most like to meet is … Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

A different practice area that intrigues me is … environmental law. We need more lawyers working to protect the environment for our children and their children.

I can’t believe more people haven’t read … Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl.

My fictional heroes are … Luke Cage and Harry Potter.

My real-life heroes are … my parents. They taught me my work ethic and humility and instilled a desire to always give back to the community. 

On weekends I … enjoy hiking and outdoor activities with my daughters: Julia, 6, and Olivia, 3.

The talent I wish I had is … the ability to sing.

My favorite TED Talk is ... “Your Body Language May Shape Who You Are,” by Amy Cuddy.

My favorite meal is ... saag paneer.

I get angry when … my clients are treated unfairly.

On my best day I ... get home in time to have dinner with my family.

On my worst day I … pray.

My earliest memory is … my father bringing home a puppy from the pound.

If I had a time machine, I would ... invent the internet.

Nothing cheers me up like … my wife and daughters.

My guilty pleasure is … travel.

If I won the lottery I … would still practice law.
